SMB printing client driver data serving w/ Samba

Is there anyway to get Samba to pass back printer driver data
to a client the way NT print servers do. This makes life so much
easier. From the Samba source, it looks like the 'driverdata'
field for a printer is just set to the string "NULL". The
CIFS specs that I found don't discuss what should be returned in
that field. NOTE: I am already using the DRIVERNAME configuration
option but I want to take it one step further.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
